Welcome to my website
If this is your first visit I hope you’ll find everything here that you may want to know about my books, and what’s on the agenda for the coming year. If you’ve been here before I hope you’ll like this fresh new look.
I love the unusual image of books above. It’s an original piece of public art that featured recently in the Sculptures by the Sea exhibition at Cottesloe beach here in WA. Entitled Book Cave it’s the work of local artist Juliet Lea. The intrepid Pippa Worthington crawled inside to take this stunning photograph.
It’s been a busy year so far with my appointment as Director of the China Australia Writing Centre at Curtin University, attending the Perth Writers Festival, my involvement in the Margaret River Writers Festival and the release of a new book (see below). And there is more to come – so stay tuned for news on my blog.
I’m delighted to show you the the beautiful cover for my new book which is now available in book stores. We had a couple of excellent events to celebrate its launch: you can see some photos on my blog.
And I am very pleased to say that the book is getting some really positive reviews and has been featured by several online blogs and newspapers. You can read all about those on the Reviews and Features page.
